Lighthouse Security Expands Operations to Support Cloud Alternative

Company sales, marketing and product expansion to support continued success of Lighthouse Gateway cloud-based IAM platform

Led by cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) pioneer Eric Maass, Lighthouse Security Group on Wednesday announced expanded operations to support the launch of the next generation of its Lighthouse Gateway platform.

According to Maass, CTO, Lighthouse Security Group, "Lighthouse Gateway has been an efficient and cost-effective cloud-based alternative to traditional IAM systems since day one. Additionally, in recent years we've performed extensive research and development and worked closely with our customers to integrate cutting-edge security and compliance features. We are supporting our product expansion with increased investments in sales and marketing to drive increased awareness of our time-tested, best-of-breed IAM platform."

Based on the IAM platform that Maass designed and deployed for the U.S. Air Force, Lighthouse Gateway is a secure, cloud-based IAM platform that helps reduce the risk, cost and complexity typically associated with traditional on-premise infrastructure. The Gateway combines the best of both worlds, with a foundation based on proven IAM technology from IBM, surrounded by nearly a million lines of proprietary code that optimize it for the cloud and make it easy to manage and deploy.

Lighthouse Gateway has already been adopted and deployed by companies such as Molson Coors Brewing Company and VantisLife Insurance Company, and has received accolades from several industry analyst firms and publications - and has been recognized by IBM - for the innovation and demonstrated business value its platform brings to the IAM market. The next-generation of the Lighthouse Gateway now includes several new features that bolster its security and compliance capabilities.
